100th YEAR DF
TAYLOR UNIVERSITY. UPLAND. INDIANA
Dur Centennial Year
June Meredith, Editor
to the memory of
Bishop William Taylor
We deem it a privilege to dedicate our Centennial
Edition of the Gem to the memory of that outstanding
man of faith and achievement after whom the institu-
tion is named, Bishop William Taylor. Embodied in the
record of his life are the spiritual experiences of the
"New Birth and the Sanctified Life. Likewise there are
the achievemnts of a world evangel who saw, as did
the founder of his Church, that the world was his
parish. The name Taylor University, in honor of Bishop
William Taylor, was given to the school not only be-
cause of the Spirit-filled life, the missionary zeal, but
also because Bishop Taylor was the only man who
had been elevated from the Laity — the ranks of the
Local Preachers — to the high office of Bishop. Those
traditional experiences of grace and those heroic en-
deavors in world evangelism which characterized
Taylor have become the watchword of the institution
which bears his name. In appreciation of the sacred
trust which is ours to perpetuate we follow in his train.
GLIMPSES FROM TAYLOR UNIVER
The Fort Wayne Female College,
founded in 1846, in Fort Wayne, Indiana,
was the beginning of what is known today
as Taylor University. "The college that
cares for the soul" was devoted to the
noble object of educating young ladies.
The main building was a four story brick
building with stone trimming, having a
frontage of one hundred seventy feet.
Though plain, it was at the same time
substantial, solid and well arranged to ac-
commodate five hundred students.
Under the presidency of Dr. Alexander
C. Huestis, the first year proved a success-
ful one. There were one hundred students
enrolled in the primary, academic and col-
legiate departments. In 1850 the faculty,
by permission of the Board of Trustees,
with Rev. Samuel Brenton as the presi-
dent, opened a department for young
men, [called the Collegiate Institute in
1852] in which boys and young men could
secure instruction in all branches of learn-
ing. In the early years, it was designated
as a distinct school, entirely separate from
the "female element." As far as can be
ascertained, the commencement of 1851,
when three students were graduated, was
the first in the school's history.
The government of the school was par-
ental and kind but decided and firm, en-
forced by reason and affection, sustained
by the Bible, and administered by self-
government. The rules and regulations of
the college were firm and fair but not
modern, as the following rules prove:
"The young ladies boarding in the
institution shall rise at the ringing of the
bell in the morning, adjust their rooms, and
be engaged in study until breakfast. It
shall be the duty of the matron to see that
these rules are complied with.
"Young ladies will at no time be per-
mitted to visit the post office nor will any-
one be permitted to go to town oftener
than once a week, and then only in com-
pany with some member of the faculty, or
someone appointed by a member of the

Site of the Fort Wayne College better known as the Old Methodist Episcopal College established in 1846 as The Fort
Wayne Female College on grounds donated by Wm. Rockhill. In 1855 the College consolidated with The Fort Wayne
Collegiate Institute for young men and it was then called the Methodist Episcopal College. In 1890 the College grounds
were deeded to Taylor University. Erected by the Methodist Episcopal College Association^l936.

"No young woman shall be permitted
to contract debts or buy goods without
the written consent of her parents or
guardian, and a copy of such permission
shall be handed to the President."
As early as 1853, an attempt was made
to provide literary societies for the stu-
dents. The Thalonian Literary Society,
whose motto was "Know Thyself," was
organized in 1850. In 1854 the two small
societies — the Philosophian and the Ex-
celsior — combined and formed the El Do-
rado Literary Society, which in 1878 be-
came the Philalethean Literary Society.
In 1855, with the return of the young
men from the Mexican War and the de-
mand for higher education for both sexes
in the Protestant religious faith, the Female
College and the Collegiate Institute were
united under one management to form a
single institution known as the Fort Wayne
Following the resignation of President
Reuben D. Robinson in 1878, W. F. Yocum
was inaugurated as president. Many val-
uable reminiscences have been gleaned
from former students of President Yocum..
He was known to be a splendid educator,
kind in disposition, and well liked. His.
Christian character had a remarkable in-
fluence upon the students' lives. His
achievements and leadership did much
to further the school's position among the
educational institutions of the state.
A financial crisis was reached in the
Fort Wayne College in 1890-91, when its
trustees were authorized to sell the prop-
erty of the institution. It was sold to the
National Association of Local Preachers
The celebration of the Probation
Oratorical Contest by James S.
of the Methodist Episcopal Church; the
school became Taylor University, named
in honor of Bishop William Taylor, at that
time a preacher of world-wide fame.
The Association took charge of the
school, regulated its financial and educa-
tional policies and elected as president
Dr. Thaddeus C. Reade, after a short ad-
ministration of Christian B. Stemen, M.D.,
as acting president.
It is only proper that we tell something
about Sammy Morris, whose spirit-filled
life left its stamp upon Taylor University.
This African boy, who found Jesus through
the endeavors of missionaries on that dark
Continent, yielded himself wholly to God,
received the fullness of ihe Holy Spirit and
became an exemplar of Taylors' em-
phases. He came to the United States and
was under the influence of Stephen Mer-
ritt of New York City, who made arrange-
ments to send him to Taylor University
for his education. Dr. Reade, president
when Sammy entered the college, once
said, "To me this simple black boy is a
daily wonder, a visible miracle of the ut-
most grace of Gcd."
Upon arriving at Taylor University
Sammy Morris greatly influenced those of
the town and of the University, bringing
Thaddeus C. Reade, President of Taylor
University when Taylor was moved from
its site in Fort Wayne to Upland, Indiana
a spiritual awakening with his sincerity,
his simple faith and divine endowment.
He loved his studies and he loved this
country, but always his activities were
fervered with the desire to get back to his
people and tell them of Jesus. He took a
severe lingering cold in January, 1893,
which he bore patiently in spite of pain
and disappointment. He knew that the
Lord was calling him home, and when
asked if he feared death, replied, "Oh no,
since I've found Jesus, death is my friend."
With this spirit he went home to glory.
The memory of Sammy Morris endowed
Taylor with a spirit that makes her unique
in the educational world. Her students,
inspired by his entire consecration, have
gone to the four corners of the earth, carry^
ing the blessed message of full salvation
to all people. Miss Grace Husted of Green-
field, Indiana, a former professor at Taylor
University, is the only living teacher of
On a visit to Upland Dr. Reade was
shown some territory in this vicinity and
negotiated an agreement with the Land
Company to donate ten acres of land and
$10,000 toward a building fund. Hence
Taylor was officially moved to Upland and
chartered anew as Taylor University. The
trustees of the new organization hoped to
get some money out of the old building at
Fort Wayne, but when it was torn down
and sold, there was nothing left but one
boxcar of old furniture, Plans were drawn
for an Administration Building, and as soon
as these were completed, work was begun
on the present building. Mr. T. W. Wil-
liams donated some of the lumber and
gave much financial support from time
to time. From the clay on the campus Mr.
Henry Kline made the brick that went into
Before the building project was fin-
ished, the panic of 1893 made the con-
tinuing of work impossible for a time.
Short winter classes were held in churches
or available rooms, and the student?
stayed with the people of the town.
The Administration Building having
been completed, additional funds carne in
and the school prospered. The Sammy
Morris building was constructed at the
same time and used as the dining hall
and rooming hall. A little later the build-
Samuel Morris. 1he most outstanding student of Taylor University
ing now used for the post office and gro-
cery store was constructed as a boarding
hall and girls' dormitory. That made it
possible to convert Sammy Morris into
a boys' dorm. Soon after this came a
bequest that made possible the building
The National Association of Local
Preachers gave the responsibility of the
operating expenses to Dr. Reade, who
The building erected in memory of Sammy Morris
The school farm — adjoining Ihe campus
aided the school by writing books and
preaching throughout the country. He
wrote an account of the life of Sammy
Morris and with the money earned from
this, built the Sammy Morris Building, now
used as apartments for married couples.
Had Dr. Reade not been able to see a
new and glorious day for Taylor, with his
prophetic eye of faith, he would surely
have given up many times in despair.
But Dr. Reade toiled until his death, and
was denied the privilege of seeing the ac-
complishment of his dreams. What he
built, he built well, working with that
ceaseless energy and clear vision of which
few are capable.
It leaves one breathless marvelling at
this man, who braved well the hunger,
danger, hardship and suffering — all for
the love of One, who also had suffered
and willingly died. The call came to Dr.
Reade to give and he gave himself; the
call came to go, and he went everywhere
spreading happiness; the call came to
come and he came to Taylor University,
giving freely of all he had to offer. His
life was a shining example to all those
with whom he came in contact, and his
memory has lived on in others whose
lives were inspired by his testimony.
Then came the day in the year 1902
when the workman had to lay down his
tools, and the weary, burdened soul
slipped away from under the load into the
waiting arms of Christ. He was buried
on the campus of Taylor University, where
a memorial to this great man was erected
in the year 1924. His uncompleted task
was left to other hands.
At the death of every great man, some-
one arises to take up the falling torch and
carry it forward. With Dr. Reade's failing
health, Dr. John H. Shilling was made Vice
President and took over a large share of
the administration, and after the death of
Dr. Reade became acting president until
the close of the scholastic year 1902-03.
Desiring to further his own education, Dr.
Shilling was granted a leave of absence
for two years of study in the East. Here
he also served a pastorate, and while hold-
ing revivals on this charge he became sud-
denly ill, which illness resulted in death
at the age of 32 years. Dr. Shilling, a tire-
less worker, was the personification of
push and punctuality. One of his expres-
sions was, "It has to go. We'll make it
go." In his busy life he still found time
for poetry, and he wrote a number of
Between the close of Dr. Shilling's Ad-
ministration and the coming of Dr. Charles
W. Winchester in January 1904, Dr. Burt
W. Ayres was acting president and dean.
There was an interim with Dr. Albert
R. Archibald as acting president in 1907-08.
In those difficult days when the school
was trying hard to get on its feet, an able
leader was found in Dr. Monroe Vay-
hinger, whose faith in God and persever-
ance in his work was a tremendous help
in the building of a greater Taylor.
Plans were made for the enlargement
and beautification of the campus. In the
spring of 1909, the first concrete walk was
laid from the door of the Administration
Building to the north entrance of the cam-
pus and then to Sickler Hall. The date
may still be seen in the walk east of
Sickler. After the gravel and cement had
Dormitory building under construction
been carted in, a holiday was declared.
On a fine spring morning, the students
turned out with shovel and hoe, mixed the
concrete and laid the walk.
Slowly, section by section other walks
were built. All that existed between the
school and the town was a dangerous
board walk. Some suggested replacing
the boards, but Dr. Vayhinger objected un-
til concrete could be laid. The town
council ordered the walk to be laid, and
the property owners built the walk from
the town to the school. Mr. C. C. Ayres,
brother of Dr. Burt W. Ayres, furnished
the capital to finance many of the walks
about the campus and the walk to town.
It is amusing to note that after the side-
walk to Upland was completed there came
a demand for a change in the rules con-
cerning the social privileges of the stu-
dents, to permit couples to attend church
together on Sunday evenings.
In the development of school policies
one of the foremost plans was that Taylor
should develop into a self-sustaining in-
stitution, having correlated activities in
which a large percentage of the students
would be able to find employment. This
policy has been carried out in a highly
successful manner, not only in maintain-
ing, but also in building and expanding
the school. Taylor is still giving employ-
ment to the students who are willing to
work in any place where they qualify.
Shortly after Dr. Vayhinger had got
the building situaiton in hand, a new
problem presented itself. Each building at
that time had its own heating facilities
which proved very inadequate. In severe
weather it was nearly impossible to hold
classes. The time for action had come, so
work on a new heating plant was started
in the spring of 1911. Located in the low
spot on the northeast corner of the campus,
this plant served the school for ten years,
when it was abandoned for the present
one. Today the only vestige of the old
plant is the storage well shown by the
concrete cover. The spot where it once
stood has been transformed into one of the
most beautiful spots on the campus — the
Sunken Gardens — a gift to the school by
the class of 1925.
Another building project which was
launched in 1911 was the Helena Music
Hall. This much-needed building was
made possible largely through the gener-
ous gift of Mrs. Helena Gehman, a
woman interested in Taylor, whose will
provided the sum of $7,000 to be used in
the erection of this structure. The entire
main floor was given over to music studios
and practice rooms. Mr. Shreiner, a local
preacher, and friend of Taylor, agreed to
furnish additional funds for the music hall,
and thus his name was given to the audi-
torium on the second floor of this building.
As a result of this adequate preparation,
the School of Music became one of the
strongest departments of the University.
The addition of the pipe organ, given by
the class of 1928, has added to the musical
enjoyment of everyone.
A new dormitory for the girls became
a necessity. Dr. Silas C. Swallow, whose
Maytag Gymnasium nearing completion

wife's family name was Robin, became
interested in the plan and agreed to aid
substantially in the erection of the pro-
posed dormitory. It was named Swallow-
Robin in honor of the first donors to the
During the early years of the school,
natural gas was abundant in the vicinity.
There was a gas well on the campus used
exclusively for lighting and heating until
1906, when steam heat was installed. The
loss of natural gas was of course, a great
financial loss to the school.
The remaining 70 acres of the 80 acre
plot from which the original campus was
taken became one of the most valuable
additions to the school. It was purchased
for $7,000, of which $5,000 was donated by
Mrs. Martha McGrew in 1915, and the re-
maining taken in small subscriptions. Mrs.
McGrew later gave $1,000 to build the
large dairy barn on this farm.
In 1919, those who knew the loved
Taylor were disappointed to learn that the
spire on the tower of the Administration
Building had to be removed because of
danger from lightning. It was so woven
into the chain of associations, in picture
and song, that it seemed as if it were a
During this time student activities grew
very much. New organizations were
formed, and old ones quickened into new
life. In 1903 a few earnest young men
who were seeking to learn the art of pub-
lic speaking, develop powers of logical
reasoning, and to obtain a knowledge of
parliamentary law, bonded themselves to-
gether and formed the Eureka Debating
Club. Another Boys' Debating Society, the
Eulogonion Debating Club was organized
in 1906. This club held weekly debates
and inter-club debates were elected for
fall and winter terms. On November 13,
1913, the Soangetaha Debating Society,
the first among the girls, was organized
under the sponsorship of Sadie Miller. In
the fall of 1921, girls met and organized
the Mnanka Debating Society. It was dur-
ing this period that sports assumed their
rightful prominence in the student life of
the school. Basketball soon grew into a
major sport on the campus.
Taylor students possessed love of
country as well as love of God. During
World War I military units were present
at the University. In the days of sacrifice,
the religious trend was at its height as
great revivals were seen during three
years of 1918-1921.
A brief administration of Dr. James M.
Taylor followed the presidency of Dr. Vay-
hinger. During his term of office there was
projected a great building program which,
while it expanded the real estate holdings,
increased the school's indebtedness. It
was during this brief administration that
the ownership of the institution passed
from the National Associalion of Local
Preachers to the Alumni Association,
which was incorporated for the purpose of
being capable of holding property. At this
time the school acquired the additional 80
acre farm on which the president's resi-
dence is located.
Dr. John Paul became president in
1922, and under his administration Magee-
Campbell-Wisconsin dormitories, begun in
the James M. Taylor administration, were
finished. A receivership occurring in the
early part of Dr. Paul's administration led
to the organization of The Legal Hundred
of Taylor University, and the title passed
from the Alumni Association to this cor-
poration. Upon the resignation of Dr. Paul
the board asked Dr. Burt W. Ayres to take
over the duties of Acting President of the
In 1931 Dr. Robert Lee Stuart was called
to the leadership of Taylor University. Ke
came to the presidency during the period
of world-wide depression, the effects of
which were felt in the school. Through his
efforts the institution stood. Forced into
receivership during this crisis, the William
Taylor Foundation was established, which
bought the school. The students and
friends of the school respected Dr. Stuart
because of his effective labors. During his
presidency the Maytag Gymnasium,
largely erected during the former adminis-
tration, was completed. Dr. Stuart laid
down his duties as president in 1945, and
the school is continuing under the leader-
ship of the president, Dr. Clyde W.
Dr. Meredith's ministry here has not
been long, but already faculty and stu-
dents alike have learned to respect, ad-
mire and love him. His trust and faith in
God have stimulated the whole school,
and under his leadership we look forward
to a bright future together.
Just as Taylor has, through the grace
of God, held fast to the principles of Chris-
tianity for the past one hundred years, so
can she look forward to many more years
of ministry as an effective Christian col-
lege if her students and faculty keep their
hearts in harmony with the Highest and
their eyes upon Christ.
Taylor has progressed not only aca-
demically and materially during the past
century, but spiritually as well, for from
Taylor's halls have gone hundreds of
young people to proclaim the gospel of
Christ to all the world — at home and
Taylor University, looking backward,
reviews a century of victory. Looking
forward, she, by the fervent prayers and
devotion of students, faculty, alumni, and
friends, may proceed unafraid as an effec-
tive Christian college.

The Centennial celebration in June will include the breaking of ground
for the new library. This project will insure Taylor's maximum ability to serve
adequately as it launches into its second century of service.
As Taylor looks to the future, it sees the necessity of expansion. More
young people than ever before from among the high school students are de-
termined to go on to college. The war has brought about definite trends toward
a greater demand for college-trained young people. Several veterans are en-
rolled in Taylor now under the G. I. bill, and many others are expected to-
register next year.
The immediate construction of the library is of the utmost importance. The-
goals in the matter of Taylor University's full accreditation are inseparably tied
in with this project.

OUR ACTING PRESIDENT
The one hundredth year in Taylor's history has given us a man
who is Christian — in unfaltering loyalty to God, competent — in his
varied activities, considerate — in helping those who seek his personal
aid and counsel, and one who inspires confidence in us for our future
and the future of our school.
We pay tribute to Dr. Meredith whose intense interest in the stu-
dents and practical Chapel messages have sought to make the student
body effectively Christian.
OUR VICE PRESIDENT
The influence of a great man has permeated the life of each Taylor-
ite who has known Dr. Ayres. Through his softly spoken word, friendly
smile, and many years of unstinting service, he has become an integral
part of Taylor University. The loyalty and devotion to Christ which so
characterizes his humble life will always be an inspiration to those who
know him. Clear-sighted wisdom, an inspiring example, high stan-
dards, a keen sense of humor, and sheer love of humanity — these are
characteristics of our Vice-President.

Cooperation has been the key that has unlocked the door to suc-
cessful accomplishments of student government. The student council,
composed of representatives from each of the four classes and a presi-
dent elected by the student body, seeks to promote friendly relations
and cooperative relationships between the students and faculty, to
establish a unity of purpose and effort, and to encourage beneficial
programs and activities throughout the year.
Some fruitful work has been the result thus far of this plan. As
the years roll on, no doubt a higher standard of perfection will be
reached, but at present the student council, the student government,
and faculty student committees, have served successfully the purpose
for which they were established.

The Class of 1946, as it views retrospectively the past four years,
notes continuous intellectual, social, and spiritual progress.
In 1942 we donned little green caps denoting our immature state.
We felt a tremendous progressive leap when we became sophomores,
with our new sweaters of maroon and white. Then a year later we
emerged as upperclassmen, and were astounded at our elevated status:
our keys of knowledge symbolized the opening of numerous spiritual
and intellectual ventures of our lives.
During the final year of our college careers, we continue to recog-
nize our need for additional support in academic and spiritual realms
exemplified by our class canes.
Now as we leave Taylor, we realize our intellectual, cultural, and
social advancement achieved here. We readily recognize too, our
total dependence upon Jesus Christ as our Savior, Lord, and King, who
will enable us through His strength to be more than conquerors as we
enter our various fields of endeavor!

A reassuring smile, an encouraging
word, a hearty chuckle — Buzz! He was
outstanding in his academic work and in
all his varied activities. For his forethought
and good judgment he was regarded to
be an excellent student council President;
for his gay quips and contagious humor he
was considered indispensable to the din-
ing hall workers. With the Taylor quar-
tette, or when about the campus a ready
testimony was upon his lips and a song
in his heart.
Added to all this Buzz has been a top-
flight student, well-liked by all. Indeed
he has set a fine example for his under
classmen friends to follow.
"The girl with a smile in her voice."
That's the way Marguerite is referred
to by those who have heard her sing, for
this comely miss can put over a song with
An ability in music and singing is tal-
ent enough for any girl, but when scholar-
ship is added to that, plus a winning Chris-
tian personality, well then, the sum total
result is a real person.
That which has endeared Marguerite
to her fellow students has been a willing-
ness to work hard and untiringly when
given a responsibility. And in spite of all
she has to do, she has remained gracious,
— a good example of Taylor personality at
"Where's Harold — We can ask him."
When the impossible was a necessity
Harold could do it. This versatile mem-
ber of our student body through dramatic
ability, staging ingenuity, a willing and
ready spirit, brought a "well done" from
all our lips. In the class room his discus-
sion and ability to answer the unanswer-
able was unequaled.
His unassumed manner and Christian
testimony disclosed in his daily walk com-
manded the respect of all his fellow stu-
dents as well as the members of his church
whom he served so faithfully. For his
activity in every part of student life, his
intelligence in the classroom, and for his
possession of the true Taylor spirit, Harold
has achieved his place in Who's Who.
"What an outstanding Gem!" This
comment was the result of many tedious
hours of planning and concentration by
the editor of our Gem. June's cheery atti-
tude, her ready smile for all who come
her way, and her enthusiasm exercised in
all she undertook paved the way for her
success in college life.
Her musical talent, the mastery of the
violin, gave us many pleasant listening
hours. Her name was found on the mem-
bership roll of several school organiza-
tions, yet besides her activity in all of
these, her professors pronounced her to
be "an excellent student." All these made
June more than worthy to be numbered
among Taylor's outstanding personalities.

Proud to be upperclassmen? I'll say we are. What delight in
giving orders to the freshmen! How charming the girls looked in their
up-sweeps and green caps! Some of the fellows looked unusual with
their hair parted in the middle.
We had a splendid year together as a junior class with the council
of our much appreciated sponsor, Dean Rediger. The best parties our
class has had, came this year. Our junior play in February brought
many laughs and much enjoyment to all. Remember 6:15 on Wednes-
day morning? Those who attended the class prayer meeting received
blessing and inspiration.
A big event at the close of the year was our Junior-Senior Banquet

Humbly, yet without shame, the class took their second trip through
the Mississinewa river at the annual Tug-O-War.
During the year the sophomores arranged a Sadie Hawkins Day
party with the freshmen. The affair provided the girls with an oppor-
tunity to spend an enjoyable evening with their favorite "Lil Abner."
Several other parties and events were on schedule — all marked with
the usual class zest and spirit.
Gray and red were selected as class colors; the gray signifying
stability of character and the red, a keenness for living and a desire to
help others to live abundantly.
All in all the sophs contributed much to the spirit of Taylor.

This year has brought about the enrollment of the Class of "49";
though yet very early in college life, the class has already revealed
that it has a great store of talents.
The first test, as to whether or not the class would cooperate, came
on the day of the traditional tug-of-war, when the freshmen pulled the
sophomores through the "Mississinewa" River, a feat which has been
accomplished only once before in the history of Taylor. The credit
for this achievement does net go solely to the small representation that
made up the team but equally as well to the remainder of the Class
and its sponsor, Professor Keller, who were right at hand giving the
team their moral support and the encouragement that gave them the
spirit of cooperation and determination that won the pull.
The Freshmen Class has enjoyed the activities of this year, the
fellowship with one another and with all, on the campus of Taylor.
The Freshmen look to the years before them with an enthusiasm to
grasp the treasures that are offered — treasures that will prepare them
for the future and for the service of their Lord.

Gospel Team Committee & Student Pastors
Taylor University students are privi-
leged with numerous opportunities to serve
the Lord through Gospel Teams. These
groups of consecrated, talented young
people assist in Sunday services, revivals,
young peoples' meeting, rallies and
special occasions. These groups are sent
out through the Gospel Team Committee.
Students are strengthened and en-
couraged, not only because of the bless-
ing that is received but also because of
the practical experience that is gained.
Eighteen men students have availed
ihemselves of an excellent opportunity to
earn while they learn and to gain minis-
terial experience while training for full-
time service. The churches served, near
and far, are of three denominations, while
the attendance in the various churches
ranges from 20 to 1 15. "... Come ye after
Me and I will make you to become fishers

With the resounding echo of the Hallelujah Chorus still wending its way
into our hearts and minds, we are reminded that another year of melodious
harmony has passed into the history of Taylor.
The choral society, under the able direction of Professor Keller has sounded
forth the final note of triumph to this Centennial year as 100 students, together
with soloists of outstanding ability, blended their voices and hearts in singing,
"For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth forever and ever."
This spirit was prominent in every rendition by the chorus; namely, the
annual youth conference, the Easter Cantata, and other special occasions.
From many of the chorus members testimonies have been given of a
deepening in their own spiritual lives as they have comprehended the great
responsibility we face as we sing His Praises.
S P E
"Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing."
The Vesper Choir, progressing under the able direction of Professor Paul
Keller, celebrates its 8th birthday this year. One hour a week prepares the
specially selected group of singers for the Sunday evening Vesper Service.
The choir has a ministry among neighboring churches besides singing on
Sunday evenings and on special occasions such as at Youth Conference and
at Commencement. Emphasis is placed upon good singing in a worshipful
inspirational spirit. As they continue their ministry it is proving to be a blessing
to both those who sing and those who listen.

"I'm Happy in Jesus" was the testi-
mony of the 1945-1946 Taylor Quartette
as they went out, representing the school
and singing the Gospel. The fellows on
the quartette, from four different states,
worked together singing the glorious mes-
sage of salvation.
The Quartette had a full schedule dur-
ing the year, singing at Revival meetings,
Young Peoples' groups, homecomings,
regular church services and other occa-
sions. It has been a great joy for them to
have the opportunity to go out to witness
for Christ, to sing the story of redemption
and to represent the school they love.
One of the members of the original
Taylor quartette, Melvin J. Hill, wrote the
Taylor Song. Other members of the quar-
tette of 1904-1908 were J. M. Sprinkle, H. G.
Hastings, and W. C. Dennis.
"Sing forth the honor cf his name: make his praise glorious." Psalm 66:2.
Throughout the year many occasions have arisen for the
trios to serve the Master in song and praise. Many have been
blessed by the glowing testimonies of these girls. Besides singing,
they are called upon to assist in playing the piano, to lead con-
gregational singing, and to speak in youth meetings.
It has been through their fervent practicing and desire to sing
that they have participated in various activities both on and off
campus, in churches, and in school activities.
May God continue to bless and use the trios in His service.

A new organization on our campus this
year is the Debate Club. Under the efficient
leadership of Professor Lillotte the eight
members took their work seriously and
trained diligently for a good season. De-
bating is like sports — having its rules of
the game and requiring teamwork. Learn-
ing the basic principles of argumentation
and constant practise were the methods
used in making each member a good
Besides intra-class debates we had
several engagements with other colleges
in the state for non-decision debates. On
February 23 we participated in the annual
Debate Tournament at Manchester Col-
lege. For our first year of debating we
made a satisfactory showing — winning six
of the debates from twelve of the leading
universities in the Middle West.
It is already evident that this new club
is a cultural asset to our students and
through contact with other colleges a
benefit to our school.
The impact of Taylor is felt around the

another. "Maizie," a tragedy, de-
picted the life of a couple in the
slum area of a large city. This
play held the attention of the
audience every minute.
The Junior Class Play, "Twelve
Hours By the Clock" was full of
laughs, thrills and excitements.
Each character was played excel-
lently. Events took strange and un-
expected courses and the suspense
of the play held the audience spell-

curtain went up on the first act of
"Annie Laurie," presented by the
Thalo-Philo Literary Societies, to a

presented many complications
which were satisfactorily solved to
the listeners. The Scotch setting
and costumes were very colorful
and pleasing to the eye, and the
entire production is acclaimed by
all as the best play to have been
staged recently at Taylor.
The final production of the year
was a Pageant representing the
history of Taylor University for
the past one hundred years. It was
presented during the Centennial
celebration by the literary soci-
eties, and helped us to appreciate
more, the value of our dear Alma
Mater, and her growth through the

many bruises suffered at the hands of the
toughest competition she has seen since
the war cut into her schedule in 1942 and
reduced her purple and gold team to a

back to build the Taylor sports club into
even a greater team than before the war.
Already some of the boys have returned
to immediately take their positions. Taylor
Hayes, as he returned just prior to the
opening of the second semester, sparked
the Trojans in one of the most vital games
of the year, as the boys went on the floor
to meet and beat the tournament favorite,
North Manchester. Though many games
were lost during the season, never was
the spirit of our fighting Trojans shaken.
Every game was a pleasure to see as the
men fought for victory. We are proud of
that spirit that does not crack under the
pressure of ovei whelming odds. For clean
playing, real sportsmanship, and plenty of
basketball thrills send out the Taylor Tro-
jans every time.

ball, tennis and on the nicest
days, hiking. Hiking, according
to the gym class connotation, is
more than a leisurely stroll; it
is a stiff, brisk walk in which
there is a defnite physical value.
During the winter months
some participate in volleyball,
badminton, and shuffleboard,
but the prime favorite is basket-
ball. Each class has its team
and student coach. Games are
played on Saturday mornings.
There is a fine class spirit evi-
denced at these contests. This
year the Forsh are the champ-

Friendship, fellowship, and fun was not only our motto for rush
days but was the essence of our activities throughout the year.
Friendship with Christ and with each other was our goal in our
work and in our play.
We have enjoyed fellowship as we have worked together in
planning and presenting our semi-monthly programs and special
presentations including the Christmas chapel service, New Thalo pro-
gram and our annual play.
Fun has had its place too, in our activities. It was climaxed by
the Masquerade-Barn Party with the grotesque costumes, initiation for
new members and substantial refreshments.
Yes, Thalos, let's press ever onward for years of friendship, fellow-
ship and fun.

Eldcradc is a word which holds a wealth of meaning for us lovers
of truth. It is the consummation of our dreams which we find fulfilled in
the spirit of our organization — a spirit which centers not in any one, or
even in all of us, but rather in the One who truly satisfies every desire
of our hearts.
This spirit has resolved itself into practice in the fine spirit of coop-
eration and fellowship which we have enjoyed as we worked together
on the rush day activities and cur annual hayride.
Our regular meetings are inspiring because of this bond of unity
which knits us toge.her in all our activities.
We face the future with the bright hope of Christian faith, a determin-
ation to hold high the blue and white banner, and finally to realize
the full meaning of Eldorado- -every dream fulfilled.

a full, beneficial and happy one for the Weavers of Knowledge.
With Dr. Oppenheimer as our sponsor we have had many inspir-
ing times working and talking together for he has taken a genuine
interest in helping us to supply some of our cultural needs. His art
lectures have been especially stimulating to those of us who have
wanted to know more about contemporary art.
The mention of our spring banquet will bring a smile to any
Mnanka's face as it was pleasurable to work on committees getting
ready for it; but the real thrill came when the night drew near.

The musical Indian name, "Soangetaha," is loved and revered by
every strong-hearted maiden. Like the Indian maidens of old, the girls

their efficiency in debating and prepared speeches and programs.

"Now then we are ambassadors for Christ . . ." II Cor. 5:20
Ambassadors for Christ, Taylor's missionary organization, pro-
motes interest in the spreading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ both at
home and abroad. By means of the monthly meetings, the needs of
various fields of service are brought before the students and helpful
talks on preparation for missionary work are presented. News of Taylor
Missionaries is publicized through the monthly paper.
The goal for the year, $1,200, is the highest in the history of the
school. This money will go to support Rev. and Mrs. Glenn Rocke,
graduates of Taylor and missionaries to the Congo who are planning
to begin their work on the foreign mission field this spring.
We are looking forward to greater blessing and usefulness in the
years to come as — Ambassadors for Christ.
"Go thou and preach the kingdom of God" Luke 9:60.
Completing its thirty-fifth year of activity, this organization con-
tinues to be of great importance in the student life of Taylor.
In its monthly gatherings the Preachers of Tomorrow study ways
and means of effecting the World of the Future . . . listen to inspirational
lectures . . . gather miscellaneous bits of practical advice. Besides our
own faculty, several well-known ministers and leaders in the fields are
secured to address the group. Some meetings are given over to practice
preaching by members of the group, with helpful and kind criticism
Our motto this year is "Everyone, man or woman should be a
minister and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

No, it is not a parade. It is the regular Friday evening march of
students to Society Hall for another one of those hours filled with joyful
Gospel singing, enthusiastic, clear ringing testimonies, and a vital mes-
sage from the soul of one of the Lord's servants.
"Holiness unto the Lord" is the motto of this organization and a
characteristic of its every meeting. The lasting interest and abiding
value of this organization are seen not only in the effects upon the
student body but in the heart-longing desire for alumni to return for
"a good Holiness League meeting."
The informal atmosphere of Holiness League is well suited to the
work it accomplishes in the student life of Taylor. Sharing the experi-
ences develops, strengthens and deepens the Christian life of each of its
members. The services are truly the student's own, in purpose, in leader-
ship, and expression.
GIRLS' DORM. COMMITTEE BOYS' DORM. COMMITTEE
The Girls Dormitory Committee plays
an essential role in the dormitory life of the

help the girls maintain a feeling of coop-
eration between the girls and their dean
and make dormitory life the happiest it

World-wide in its scope — international
in its view — comprehensive in its study;
these phrases and many more might be
used to describe the approach of the
Foreign Language Club to its field.
Remembering the words spoken by
Noah Webster, "Language as well as the
faculty of speech was the immediate gift
of God," the organization went forward
this year with enthusiasm under the spon-
sorship of Dr. Pol.
The Language Club had as its aim the
study of the culture, customs and lang-
uages of the world.
The Education Club is one of the divi-
sional clubs operating effectively for the
advancement of knowledge relative to sub-
jects in our college curriculum. Its mem-

its members for leadership and active
participation in society.

International events have been of such a nature
that there was never a lack of variety in the programs
of I.R.C. The membership consists of all majors and
minors in the history and sociology departments and
others who are interested in international affairs.
The aim of the organization is to strive to furnish
students of Taylor with impartial enlightenment upon
national and international issues of the day, and to
cooperate with other I.R.C. clubs throughout the world
for internaional peace.

Two Wednesday evenings a month we lovers of music gather in
Shreiner Auditorium for our Music Club meetings which consist of vocal,
piano, organ, and other instrumental numbers. Under the excellent
leadership of Professors Bothwell and Keller, and with the cooperation
of each member we feel our Music Club has accomplished much this
One of the chief aims of the organization is to enable the student
to interpret the themes of the Masters, and having interpreted, to appre-
ciate the beauties that are ours in music.
In our English Club we have striven for programs
of interest and intellect, and have tried to foster lit-
erary development through our accomplishments.
The members, consisting of majors and minors in
English, met to "listen, perform and create."
The programs were planned by the censor board
chairman under the helpful sponsorship of Professor
To the Senior members, memory is a blessed
thing; but to those who remain, a look into the future

never-ceasing activity. Life for the Taylor

In this volume of the Gem, typical high-
lights from the history of the school have
been recorded, particularly the outstand-

first Gem was published in 1898. Since that
time it has become a tradition of the school
to publish a Gem annually to record the
events of lasting interest that occurred on
the campus during the school year. This
year has been an especially important one
since it is the Centennial year. The Gem
